No you won’t, Making a housing disrepair claim against your landlord will not get you in any trouble. It is your landlord who is in the wrong and has broken the terms of the tenancy.

No you won’t! Because your case is run on a strict no-win-no-fee policy, we levy no fee directly to you for our time, expertise and work.

We will only take-on cases we feel have a high probability of success and won’t charge anything in the event we are unable to get a positive result.
The only time you will be charged is in the instance that your case is successful, in which case a pre-set fee of 25% will be deducted from any compensation awarded to you.

If your case is unsuccessful, you won’t be required to make any payment whatsoever!

You are entitled to make an application on the basis that:
– You have reported the issues to your landlord.
– Your landlord has failed to rectify the maintenance issues within a reasonable timeframe.
– The issues are diminishing your enjoyment of the property.
– The cause of the issues can be traced back to a fault that is the responsibility of the landlord.
